Dear Mr. Birnbaum,
Please find enclosed my academic resume for your reference. Also accept this letter as an application for the position of a research associate in your college. I have graduated from ABCD College of Science and looking forward to a Doctorate in my field of work.
Given an opportunity in your College to work as a fellow research Associate, I would be able to work on my topic of research. This would enable me to augment my career as well as add to the value of your college. My academic background has been strong and I am sure that my endeavor will not fail you.
Thank you very much for your time. Would be looking forward to your response at the earliest.
